Eash seller sets up their own on-line shop. Once set up, the wait for sales to begin. I really thought by this time I would have made my first fortune yet I'm still trying to turn a profit. I mean, take a look at my shop here and the beautiful, one of a kind, handcrafted dried and silk floral home decorations that I create. The problem is that it's easy to get lost in the crowd. You need to spend a considerable amount of time promoting what you sell. If you are thinking of starting an internet business, familiarize yourself with some social media sites, the most popular being facebook, twitter, pinterest or stumbleupon.

On Etsy, there are teams that you can join which give you a chance to socialize, share ideas and help promote one another. You can easily find a team where you fit in as there are numerous teams to choose from. On Etsy, I found a Christian team called the CASTteam (Christian Artist Street Team) Being a Christian, you like to cross paths with other likeminded Christians. With over 3000 members, the CASTteam is a great way to connect with other Christians from all over the world. On the CASTteam, we help one another with business but more importantly, we support one another as Christians. We share our burdens, we pray for one another, and we laugh and cry together. It's interesting that there are so many different backgrounds or Christian religions represented in the group, yet there is real harmony, as we are all one in Christ.
